    I’m certain I’m doing things the wrong way 🙂 – hopefully this makes sense…

    Our monitor console is an SQ5 and all players/vocalists are using the SQ4You app to control their mix. We wanted to have some reverb on the vocal channels (usually 3 vocalists), so I ran an aux send on each vocal channel to one of the reverb FX units. The players/vocalists then have a fader on the SQ4You app controlling the level of the FX channel.

    The downside is that if I bring the fader all the way down on a vocalist (if I don’t want them in my mix), because the reverb is an aux send coming from the main mix (not the individual stereo mix), I don’t hear the dry vocal, but I do hear the wet. It also becomes an issue if someone is working with a really hot mic or is singing quite loudly…the reverb gets overloaded with the one voice.

    What’s the right way to do this 🙂 ? Do I have to use a different reverb fx unit for each vocalists? Should I put an insert on the vocals and make everyone use reverb even if they don’t want to? Or is it as simple as ensuring the aux send is post-fader (I really can’t remember right now if the send is pre or post)?

    Hopefully that makes sense. There might even be a tutorial video on this, I’m just having a hard time figuring out how to search for it.

    Thanks in advance.
